Many classic movies—from Jaws to Rocky to Star Wars—are unthinkable without their iconic scores, yet movie music remains one of the least understood elements of the filmmaking craft. Featuring interviews with Randy Newman, Danny Elfman, Quincy Jones, Hans Zimmer, and many more, this fascinating documentary offers a comprehensive history on the evolution of Hollywood film composing, from the early scores for Hal Roach two-reelers to those for contemporary blockbusters, and how this hidden work has shaped generations of moviegoers.
